The issue of gay marriage has been around for a while. The argument from the religious side is that marriage is sacred and should be between a man and a woman because that is what God approves of. Fair enough. However, If this is what you believe, I raise the following questions:
1: Are you against gay and lesbian couples getting married, or are you against them using the term marriage? The term itself symbolizes religion.
2: What if you believe in a different God? What if you don’t believe in one at all? Should those people follow your rules? If you’re a Republican, I’m sure you don’t like it when a Democrat comes knocking on your door telling you to vote for Obama, and vice-versa.
If Christians believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman, great, that’s fine. But if a gay man who isn’t Christian wants to get married, lay off. He isn’t breaking your rules because he doesn’t share your beliefs. People in other countries are not subject to our laws, and us not to theirs, so quit acting like your beliefs are the only ones that matter.
The government should legalize gay marriage, call ALL marriages civil unions, and religions that wish to ban gay marriage may do so. Couples outside of said religion should not be subject to their rules. It’s called separation of church and state.
